New Freddy Krueger look

11.24.2009

The teaser trailer for the nonessential remake of NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET gave us a tiny peek at what Jackie Earle Haley's version of crispy dreamstalker Freddy Krueger would look like.

Now we've got a much better look at the revamped horror icon, thanks to STYD and Figures.com. Collectibles craftsmen NECA will be making figures based on the Platinum Dunes redo, and a closeup of Krueger's burn-scarred visage has surfaced. While it's not a photo of Haley's face from the film, it's probably pretty close to what we'll get on screen next April.

So what's the verdict? Scary? Silly? Realistic? Better than the original? Fire Marshal Bill? Two-Face leftovers? Arseface? Lost relative from THE HILLS HAVE EYES? Makeup discards from THE GRINCH WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS?

I guess it depends on the lighting. If he is mostly in the dark, it could look exceptionally creepy, otherwise it's pretty cheesy. I'll leave judgement until i see the film.

BIg No

When you remake a movie, f*cking RE-MAKE it and not COPY it! Damn stupid f*ck ups. Chainsaw worked because it looked different and updated. They copied allot from the original nightmare. Freddy looks the same (except for the stupid makeup). RE-MAKE the whole thing and give Freddy some new wardrobe/glove!! Why remake/reboot it if you're not going for a new angle? Might as well make a remake. At least we would have Robert in REAL Freddy makeup. 2 thumbs down for everything concerning this

I dont care how good Hayley is going to be. The makeup is toxix and there was nothing wrong with Robert Englund reprising the role. This is going to suck.

HATE IT!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I hate it. I understand it a remake, bu the other remakes they for the most part kept to the look of the original. Sorry not liking it at all. They could of given Freddy an updated look like they did in A New Nightmare

I think it looks awesome. Plus Haley's a phenomenal actor, so I'm more than confident enough that at least HIS performance will be stellar.

Thumbs up

I have to say, considering this is a remake AND a different actor playing the role, it works. I mean, he certainly looks like a burn victim, and not like a copy of Robert Enlgund.

THE JOKER

I remember the majority of people hating on the Joker's new look as well when it was revealed. I'm going to wait for the film and the performance before I make my judgment. Besides, this is a fucking toy, not Haley.

New Freddy

I can see how they adjusted the makeup to Haley's face and totally left out the Englund look, it's different and will take allot to get used to but if this becomes a franchise I'd like to see his face keep deteriorating and changing throughout the films, I like it.

Why so much hate? I'm not really looking forward to this movie at all, but I gotta admit I like the looks of Freddy. It "works" for me.

Welcome to my Nightmare... Seriously!

Looks awful like a cheap mask. Jackie Earle Haley is a good actor, but what is wrong with Robert Englund? He could still play the role, but why remake this movie in the 1st place?

Realism for a Dream Monster?

The realism angle doesn't work for the "Nightmare" mythos, unless they're trying to make Freddy a sympathetic character. Isn't he supposed to be sort of a Demonic/Supernatural representation of a burn victim? I mean, he doesn't really have a body, just a dream representation of one. He could look however he wants. I think this [link] is a much better way to go.

Too Similar

Wow. Other than the saggy mouth it looks a lot like the original Freddy. They even have the one larger more noticeable scar on his cheek.

Just lazy.

lol, yeah, a little like Fire Marshal Bill...

But Seriously, i think a figure's look is not a good representation, so if it looks more realistic, then I am for it...

I have to say the toy is unconvincing, but we'll have to see the actual performance and the actual actor's face to make a determination. It will also come into play the approach that this movie is taking. Everyone was skeptical when they first saw Ledger as the Joker, but in context of the film it worked great. That may or may not be the case here. It's too early to tell.

I myself would have rather seen Englund reprise his role, but maybe Jackie will do a good job. I hope he gives up some jokes like Englund did. That's what I liked about Freddy!

Lame-o

Such an absolutely pointless remake. There will always ONLY be one Freddy & his name is Robert Englund. This looks silly too. Besides hairstyles & clothing what really is going to be different about this? Oh that's right they'll probably F%*K w/the already good story somehow. For you kids go watch the original it's a lot of fun though admittedly somewhat outdated, but in a good way! Oh and sequels are pretty fun too. Englund hamms it up, but still can be scary as hell in parts too.

Yeah, he looks like someone who survived the fire and has healed. Give me back the Freddy with fresh burns covering his face (which makes a lot more sense).

Looks more consistent with the facial injuries of a burn victim. The old look was nastier/meaner but-this ain't bad for a Freddy Krueger.
